Sourcing supplies is never easy. We spend hours trawling the internet, making phone calls and email inquires. Leather is certainly the hardest one of the bunch though, as it's so tactile and there are so many variations due to its organic nature.
When initially sourcing my leather I wanted much more than a certain look and feel. I wanted to know where it came from, how was it processed and whether it was sustainable. When I looked deeper into how leathers were processed I was shocked to find that methods banned here are still being used in places like India. That was when I made the choice to source my leathers from a company that has an ecological conscience...
- The company's farms produce corn, wheat, oats, soybeans and barley.
- They run a reforrestry project for their own energy consumption at their industrial plants.
- No part of the animal is wasted. Their slaughterhouses are onsite and what can not go to the tannery and butcher becomes pet food and treats.
- What can not be used after this process is turned into meat and blood meal for animal feed and tallow for the soap industry. The byproducts of this process are then used to create biodiesel.
- The production of biodiesel comes from raw animal and vegetable. The plant produces 300,000 litres a day and reduces the impact on the environment.
You can rest assured when you buy a BHO product it is the best of the best and made exclusively by me for you.
